A great game to get people moving and interacting.
- A paper bag for every participant (We buy them from a local grocery store for like 10 cents a piece).
How to Play:
Variation 1: Blind
Buy big enough bags to fit completely over students' heads. The object of the game is to be the last person with a bag on their head. Establish some safe ground rules for the game. 1.) Students may not touch their own bag. 2.) Students must stay standing (Cannot crawl or crouch). 3.) Students may not hit bags off of others' heads but may only pull bags off. 4.) Students who have lost may help direct other students still in the game.
Variation 2: Not Blind
Students put bags on heads but only to right above their eyes. The object of the game is to be the last person with a bag on their head. 1.) Students may not touch their own paper bag. 2.) students may not touch other students' (only their paper bags).
- Play some music
- Choose a variation based on your group dynamic. Variation 1 can be problematic if you have students who might use the opportunity to try to touch others inappropriately.
- Police Cheaters. Sometimes when students lose, they start to knock bags off of other students (even though they're out of the game). Or if they're supposed to be blind, they'll try to peek out of the bottom of their bag.
- Watch out for students who keep repositioning their paper bag.
